It is with a tinge of regret that I post nearly every S8, but especially the 2003 models. That’s because they’re one of my favorite cars, and with only 1,200 total examples imported to the U.S., they’re not exactly common. This is especially true when it came to the last year of the D2 S8; you had to select a no-cost “Limited Edition” package three special color combinations. The Brilliant Black is nice and Ming Blue is always pretty, but for my money no S8 matches the color combination of the third; the Avus Silver Pearl with Oxblood interior. Only 100 of these cars were made up and it feels as though I’ve let half of those slip through my hands:

I’m selling my 2003 Audi S8, it’s my daily driver. The car is fully loaded, it has front and rear parking sensors, rear blind sun shade, cold package, premium package, navigation, everything except solar sunroof for this year model!
I’m the third owner, I bought it a year and a half ago and put around 15k miles myself. I have full service history records. All major maintenance already done (including timing belt job). Since I bought it I put brand new hankook ventus V12 tires, replaced power steering hose, valve cover gasket, battery, along with keeping with maintenance such us replacing air filters, oil, spark plugs, etc. less than 5k miles ago.
I’m flexible with the price but please, serious buyers only.
Will consider trading it up or down for mercedes benz S/SL/CL class.
The overall condition of this example is quite good; miles are right, maintenance is done and it’s original. This car also has the Premium Package which combined many of the separately available options on early models like the heated seats, shades, ski sack, navigation, parktronic and tire pressure monitors. The only two remaining options would be OnStar and the solar roof; options which frankly wouldn’t be missed by most. What is missed is every opportunity one of these super sedans pops up; easily the prettiest large sedan sold at the time and perhaps one of the best looking ever, I’ll continue to hope that my parking situation changes before they’re all gone.
